4 stars Some nice keyboard driven prog made to blend RPI and classic English styles. This is a wonderful collection of tracks, all presented with "Truth" style footnotes. Most notably, "Gentlemen" is inspired by Gentle Giant's classic "Three Friends", and "Repetita Juvant" by The Great Crimso's "Discipline". Fantacone also redoes his "Hiroshima Mon Amor" as a piano piece. The aforementioned tracks, as well as "Dirty and Electric #12" stand as the album's greats, with "#12" being a killer track with its keys and drums; very interesting, at times White Noise-esque, and head and shoulders above all the other tracks. It is said that it is a remastering of a 4-track recording; this is well done, and we should be quite thankful for that! Other than "#12", nothing is so much spectacular, but the album is still an enjoyable listen. Fantacone plays his keys beautifully, and has quite the ear to composition. He can do so much more as well, so I do have high hopes for Vol. 2. A great listen, recommended to prog key and symphonic fans.
